God is Love! A statement I’ve heard many times. Imagine if you can for a minute, the good feeling you have when you interact with a loved one. That person who is so dear to you that just being near them makes you feel better. Or, how about when you look into a strangers face and find the good in them. That is the “God” part, that good feeling. But, let us not forget that He is within us as well. Everything we do well, every time we make someone feel good just by being with us, every time we make a stranger feel good by helping them or listening to them, all of these things are God pouring forth from us.
It is often easy to forget as we strive to improve our own faith and achieve a heavenly goal, that we ourselves have gifts from God. Every talent we are given, every good feeling we have is from God. He spills out from us onto the rest of the world. There is so much pure good in God that he cannot be contained within our mere selves. He must be shared with others. After all we are all created by Him. Such is the Love that is God.
If we think about this, it doesn’t take long to realize some of our own follies. If we consider what will have any meaning in the end, how trivial will our own problems be. He gave his only Son for our sins and we worry if God is waiting for you to type “amen” on Facebook? Do you think he will strike you down if you don’t “share” it to prove your love? Does it matter who did it, or bought it first? I don’t think so!
I think what will really matter is how we treat our enemies, people we just don’t know, and the needy. What will matter is if we can walk up to someone and say ” I’m sorry if I offended you, I did not mean to. What can I do to make it up to you, or, how can I help you?”, or something along those lines. Be kind to one another because God is spilling out of them from somewhere too! Anything good at all comes straight from God. He is there. You know He is because He is all good, all the time, and always will be.
Thank You God, for everything!
